Amazing Race 9 - Episode 5

This week’s episode started with the teams in Munich, Germany.

Their first task was to fly from Munich, Germany (MUC) to Palermo, Italy
it was 3 a.m. when the first team of Eric & Jeremy (the Frat boys) departed

BJ & Tyler is second
Lake & Michelle third

Of course I went to to check schedules and here is what I found:

6:35am 12:05pm FCO 5h30m AZ435/AZ1779 / ER4/M82 via Rome, Italy (FCO)
6:35am 1:30pm 6h55m AZ435/AZ1797 / ER4/M82 via Rome, Italy (FCO)
6:35am 2:35pm 8h00m AZ435/AZ783 / ER4/M82 via Rome, Italy (FCO)
7:05am 2:40pm 7h35m LH3896/LH2780 via Milan-Malpensa, Italy (MXP)

At the airport, Eric & Jeremy checked with the Information Desk who told them that that the first flight from MUC- to Palermo via Rome was on Alitalia. Of course being typical of the Frat boys, there were flirting with the Information girls

As they were bored, they and BJ & Tyler started playing with the wheel chairs at the airport

BJ & Tyler got smart and went down to the Internet café and bought their tickets on the Internet
for a 10:15a arrival; the same flights that Eric & Jeremy were upstairs waiting to buy in person.

For some reason, Lake & Michele had trouble using the Internet to buy the tickets, saying it was all in German.

Fran & Barry left the pit stop next followed by Dave & Lori at 5:28 a.m., then Joseph & Monica after that.

Oddly enough, none of the racers can pronounce Palermo, Italy properly

By the time the ticket office opened, the flight was booked, so Eric & Jeremy had to see if they could stand by for the flight, but had to wait for the last minute to do so; luckily they did get on the flight.

LH at a 9:30a arriving at 2p

Ray & Yolanda were next

Joseph & Monica took the LH to AZ connection

Danielle & Dani were last

4 teams were on the 9:30a

They very briefly showed one of the teams deplaning in Rome coming off a Bombardier CRJ200 for Alitalia.

They basically showed planes taking off and landing with no rhyme or reason to it; very disconcerting.

The Frat boys were silly as they missed all the early flights having arrived at the airport first.

There were 4 flights in all
They showed a MD88 first landing, then an A321 as another plane landing, then a DC9 landing all operated by Alitalia.
BJ & Tyler are in the lead now.

Found the piece of clothing first
Then went to the Teatro di sugesra
There was a Yield ahead
BJ & Taylor says they will yield the frat boys as they wander off

Now the Frat Boys are in 2nd place; how did they do that?
Joseph & Monica in 3rd.
Interesting that Phil recorded the Yield video at night, but the video explaining the task during the day...
They chose not to yield anyone
Fran & Barry lost again
Joseph & Monica carried the bell
Fran & Barry walked by the clue again
and decided to do the laundry as Barry said he could not lift the bell
Ray & Yolanda is 6th
Lake & Michelle is 7th
Double Ds bitching about being young and inexperienced

BJ & Tyler were in first place and they won a digital imaging package

Eric & Jeremy and they were the second to arrive
said "Holy Hottie"

Joseph & Monica were team #3

Fran & Barry is team #4

Danielle & Dani got yielded by Lake & Michelle
It was night by now.
Lake & Michelle is 5th to arrive.

Dave & Lori had the statue finished but were thrown off by the two pieces that did not fit, so Lori pulled it down and got frustrated trying to put it together.

So now they are in 6th. place
Lake & Michelle was #5 to arrive

Dave & Lori were the 6th team to arrive
Dave crying about being frustrated at Lori and he was sorry

So now it is Ray & Yolanda and Double Ds racing for the end

Ray & Yolanda were ahead of the Ds.
They were team #7

So the Double Ds from New Yawk were last and were eliminated, said they had fun with Eric and Jeremy; LOL
